Lizards and snakes will feel global warmings effects
"Animals like polar bears make headlines because of the threats they face from climate change. But there's so many other animals and plants that are just overlooked or not considered by most of the public. I think reptiles one of groups. David pilat is an ecologist at the us geological survey in boise idaho. He says that because lizards and snakes are cold blooded animals. They're sensitive to temperature changes. His ongoing research suggests that as the climate warms. Their geographic ranges will likely shift. What we're finding is that there's a number of species that are going to be moving northward or moving up in elevation for example. A snake called the northern rubber boa which lives mostly in the northwestern u. s. as the climate warms. Its habitat in the. Us may shrink. It may be able to move farther into canada but whether the animal can get there is a whole 'nother thing because of roads and cities and other types of fragmentation or barriers says. It's important to predict where species survive in the future. So wildlife managers can prepare now and take steps to protect even the scaly slithery ones.
After Decades-Long Push, It's Not Clear Who Will Bid In Arctic Refuge Oil Lease Sale
"The trump administration has fewer than three weeks to go and is working to lock in oil drilling in the arctic. National wildlife refuge. It's holding an oil lease sale next week. Deacon handling of alaska's energy desk reports it's unclear. how much oil is under the refuge. Supporters of drilling in the arctic refugees coastal plain often point to its oil potential as a reason to develop the remote stretch of land president. Donald trump has described it as the gravesites of energy in the world. But while geologists say the rock formations oil seeps and old seismic results seem promising. The data available is still limited. We don't know very much about this area. David house neck is senior. Research geologist at the us geological survey and he helped with the agencies last assessment of oil potential and alaska's coastal plain back in the late nineteen ninety s. The usgs calculated anywhere from about four to twelve billion barrels of recoverable. Oil house. next says that's a whole of oil but also a huge range in part because it's based on seismic data from the nineteen eighty s. Technology has come a long way since then going into a lease sale in the coastal plain with the only data being thirty five year old. Two d data is quite unusual house. Neck says what's also missing from the usgs assessment is any data from actual wells in the refuge. There's been just one exploratory. Well drilled in the coastal plain also back in the eighty s on alaska native land but the results of that test well are a closely guarded secret confidentiality agreement and never an end date on it. Mark myers geologist and former commissioner of the alaska department of natural resources is one of the few people who have seen the results from the test. Well outside of the big oil companies that paid for it. So i can't comment on in terms of what i saw even though it was a lot of new york times. Investigation based on legal documents suggested the results were not promising but the amount of oil is just one factor companies will consider when deciding whether to bid in the alaska sale. Another is the money. Myer says it's already more expensive to drill in the arctic compared to say texas on top of that oil prices are still low after an oil price war and the coronavirus pandemic hit the industry. Hard low prices have fallen down to a level that we larry little capital for exploration in these companies. So that's one of the biggest negatives. There's also the controversy says weena gun. An analyst with the energy research firm would mackenzie. The refuge is home to migrating. Caribou polar bears and other wildlife and that has prompted multiple lawsuits to block drilling there. Some big banks site climate change and say they won't fund oil projects in the arctic.

news on ninety two three FM get some perspective Bruce in jeans and family he's I know when I I've seen the numbers of the statistics Pamela that Phoenix and we were in for a variety of reasons is a uniquely dangerous the city to be a pedestrian yeah when you're walking around the city of Phoenix it you can be taking your life into your own hands or seen a dramatic increase in the amount of of pedestrians who died just walking around in two thousand eight to two thousand seventeen the number of those deaths Bruce have gone up thirty five percent yeah I mean there's a live look again I I I've heard different reasons for it some of the makes sense some of them seem like guesstimates but there's no denying the numbers they are what they are we had some tragic examples this week already again of of of pedestrians losing the lice people once I walk people crossing the street but what kind of specifically because this is one of the reasons I've heard is that while we have distracted drivers who may not notice that pedestrian because they're playing with the phone Pamela you also have distracted pedestrians not paying attention with cars because you're playing with the phone yeah I think that that's a it's a big aspect it's just one but it but it is a big aspect if you've ever been in a mall okay and the person in front of you is texting on their phones don't give me slow walkers hello it down in your life is malfunction slow walkers to the right your pass on let's go do you not know the rules of the mall okay so if you're experiencing that at the mall or on a sidewalk somewhere the person you know they're they're engaged in what they're doing they're not paying attention on them so while you know when I go jogging and and I have music on I usually have like one year but in in one of your **** out because it can be dangerous to just go running in you know on the right leg would just really getting your ears yeah so I try to be aware but what we're finding out is texting can actually be more dangerous for you if you're out walking around the listening to music or even talking on the phone yeah and I think it's it's because it requires you to use a variety of your senses do you know what I'm saying the more of your senses you have to use the less you're aware so you've got to use your brain your figure we are texting using our eyes obviously your you use your hands get your I'm sorry like the only thing it's not is it you're not smelling the text but I think what the important distinction between all of these though is when when you're texting were you doing you're looking down looking at a screen as when you're listening to music your head can be up you can still have when you're talking on the phone your head can be up not everyone you know does that but but it can be done like I can type without looking using I'm out fly only can I worked I don't work for yeah I can't do that on the phone yeah we we can do that on the phone like just can't figure out weekly to so you have to look at it in and that's where the problems began yeah well and and again the sad part is that we are seeing that pedestrian because I think what I think is what I think is happening is the the intersection and I'm not gonna be careful of the words when you have a distracted driver and a destructive pedestrian you have a recipe for a tragic in one of the two is paying attention you get a chance you get a chance I think you have a better mom my gosh on if both of them aren't paying attention good luck but what I find interesting as well is we talk so much about all of the safety mechanisms that are being put into cars right a lot of times when we talk about that lane departure or even making something's in front of like you run in front yeah and and I have a rental car over the weekend what were you about to hit I don't know but it was like it was kept telling me my forward sensor and I'm like well it anyway and a lot of times I I have thought about that as you know it helps with the distracted driver right if you're playing with your phone try to get Pandora switching this than the other or texting blah blah blah and you're moving around what you shouldn't be doing it's going to to protect you in our help protect you and help protect the people around you what I had never thought is the driver who is paying attention hands attending to look around at the pedestrian that walks out not paying attention Ms off the curb in front of me because they've got their their face in the phone and how it helps to protect them as well I thought this was was an interesting note fewer people have died on American roads in in twenty eighteen that's a good thing okay it lesson twenty eighteen then was on twenty seventeen okay but in that number what you're what you're not realizing is the huge rise in the number of pedestrians who were killed by a rival right dot has gone up in recent years it's distracted driving it's distracted walking yeah distracted pedestrians in and so you really do because because I would tell you that I try to be aware and when I'm on city streets I'm really like it intersections so I'm.

And Sanders says while it wasn't the devastating event in the eastern United States. It's a big deal the eastern United States. This would be a relatively significantly sized magnitude earthquake being that they do not get many of the main should for greater events. He says the quake was felt as far away as Atlanta. And there have been many aftershocks, which are not unusual. The Tennessee valley authority says the nuclear plant in the area didn't appear to be affected and continues to operate safely.
